Barbarians at the Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco

Buy Here:

Bryan Burrough,John Helyar

“One of the finest, most compelling accounts of what happened to corporate <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />America and Wall Street in the 1980’s.”—New York Times Book Review<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />A #1 New York Times bestseller and arguably the best business narrative ever written, Barbarians at the Gate is the classic account of the fall of RJR Nabisco. An enduring masterpiece of investigative journalism by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar, it includes a new afterword by the authors that brings this remarkable story of greed and double-dealings up to date twenty years after the famed deal. The Los Angeles Times calls Barbarians at the Gate, “Superlative.” The Chicago Tribune raves, “It’s hard to imagine a better story...and it’s hard to imagine a better account.” And in an era of spectacular business crashes and federal bailouts, it still stands as a valuable cautionary tale that must be heeded.
